I am a member of the Collective Bias® Social Fabric® Community. This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper amplification for Collective Bias. #AmazonWishList #AmazonHasIt #CollectiveBias Although my kids are still a few years off from going to college, we have a few family friends that attend the service academies and we thought we would share some College Care Package Ideas for their upcoming exams. Since we are sending a few care packages out, we will be getting our supplies of Amazon.com but packaging them from home. Here are some must have items and creative ways to package up those much-needed boosts during exam time.
I remember exam time in college and although you felt you needed to spend hours studying, it was just as important to find a friend who needed a study break as well. That is why we have broken up our College Care Package into 2 different sections, a Study Time and a Study Break Time package all in one.
For the Study Time care package we thought of some dorm friendly snacks the boys might like. We just plan on filling a shoe box that we added a fun printable on top. Study time you need your protein and a little caffeine to keep you on track. We plan on packing up some
- Slim Jims: Slim Jim is the original meat stick. It comes in a few different flavors so the boys can pick from their #Amazonwishlist.
- Swiss Miss: When you just can’t drink another cup of coffee, try Swiss Miss’ newest cocoa treat–Simply cocoa- just five simple ingredients with no artificial flavors or preservatives.
- DAVIDS: Another fun protein snack to study with are a bag of DAVID seeds. DAVID seeds has great flavors you’ll love–grab a bag of original or try something new like Ranch, BBQ, jalapeno Hot Salsa or Dill Pickle
- An assortment of hard and chewy candies
Study Break Time Care Package will hopefully give them the needed break and entertainment to get back to studying after an hour or so. I remember wanted to escape into a romantic comedy during exam time. Whatever the movie genre, the snacks are still the same. Fill a fun Plastic popcorn container with some of the following items:
- Orville Popcorn: Stick a bag of this in your dorm microwave and see how many friends emerge. .Orville Redenbacher’s is the perfect treat for anytime but movie time is the best. .Try our new varities of Skinny Microwave Popcorn
- Movie Gift card or DVD’s
- Movie size candy boxes
- A visa card or cash to go out to the movies.
Instead of guessing what your college kids might be needing, have them start a Dorm Room Care Package #Amazon Wish List.
Not only can they choose from items they find on Amazon.com but also allows you to add pictures of items they are in need of, or simply replying to a text. No need to text mom every time you run out of something, keep a running list of things your student needs and send them directly to their door without ever entering a store!
